- Booster Gold
Friday, November 16, 2018
This week, I finally got my hands on the new Knight Models DC Universe Miniature Game: Multiverse Blue Beetle & Booster Gold two-pack figures, and they're pretty much as advertised.
I ordered them from GameNerdz.com.
As you can see, the miniatures (34mm high) are sold unpainted and unassembled, so you'll need to do a little work to get them display (or play) ready. For example, my Beetle fit poorly in his stand, and my Booster had some residual resin flash that required cutting away with an xacto blade. (You can see the white line under his outstretched arm.) Your mileage may vary.
If I do ever get around to painting them — and they turn out well — I'll be sure to let you know how that goes. (The list of things I say I'm going to get around to only gets longer and longer. Sigh.)

I first re-published the following image from Ross Pearsall's incomparable Super-Team Family Presents... blog back in 2017, but it's even more appropriate today.
Lee has oft been accused of seeking the limelight at the expense of others, a personality flaw that should be painfully familiar to Booster Gold fans. Whatever faults he might have had, Lee was a master storyteller and promoter, and I shudder to think of what American superhero comics might now be if not for his contributions to the medium. Thanks, Stan.

Two and a quarter years ago, we finally got a custom-made Booster Gold hoodie from Coyote Pop Clothing.
Coyote Pop is no longer around, but Destructo Disc Designs has arisen to take its place. Although they don't offer hoodies, they are, for a limited time, making a Booster Gold jacket.
The "Gold" jacket is one of six comics-inspired polyester jackets currently being offered at DestructoDiscDesigns.com. You can order your own for $69 (plus shipping) until the end of the week. If you're interested, act now!
Thanks to Michael Foster for pointing this out.
